Windows 10: Uninstall Apps in Windows 10
Word and Excel are part of the Office desktop program, and not Store apps.
If installed, you should see them as Office in "Programs and Features" in the Control Panel.
I do have them installed. I created another account for windows and search seems to work properly for all apps. I guess I'll move to that account and remove windows apps one by one.
Thanks for your tutorials!
Thanks for the tutorial. I'm wanting to uninstall all of the apps except the store. However, I can't seem to get your Option 4.4 section to work. "To Remove All Apps except Store from New Accounts Created Afterwards". Running Windows 10 v1607.
Hello Holmium, and welcome to Ten Forums.
Just to verify, if you wanted to remove all apps but Store from all existing accounts on the PC, you would want to use step 5 in Option 4 instead.
The error you got indicates that you opened Windows PowerShell (x86) instead of Windows PowerShell. Running the command in an elevated Windows PowerShell instead should do the trick for you.
Thanks mate, I'm new to powershell. Opening it as you suggested had the desired effect. Thanks!
You're most welcome.
Wise Program Uninstaller has just added the feature of uninstalling some of the Universal Windows Apps.
A nice touch, especially for people, who prefer to avoid using CMD or do not have powershell, like me.
This is a very good tutorial - like always on TenForums. Thanks.

In-place 1511 to 1607 today, gave me reason to try Option Two. Thanks!
Many of the Universal Apps cannot be uninstalled because the button is inactive (grayed out). This might be 'by design' for the Technical Preview since Microsoft wants users to test the Apps.
The preferred method is to use the uninstall button...
